I made this to use in a chicken pot pie when I was out of canned soup, and it worked beautifully. It was easy to make. Like another reviewer, I used a little more flour to thicken it more. Very tasty soup, thanks for sharing the recipe, Rita.

I used this in place of canned cream of chicken soup in a casserole recipe. It worked terrific .It is a little thinner than the canned stuff, so as another reviewer suggested, if you want that consistency you might want to add a little more flour.
